Not all black people believe the same things. Skin pigmentation is not an indicator of someone's beliefs. However bring in a white-supremacist group is an indicator of racist beliefs just as joining the Knights of Columbus is an indicator of Christian beliefs.

The cops have known for a decade that they've been infiltrated by terrorists who believe all races are inferior to white people and now there's all these studies showing that an unarmed black or brown man is far far more likely to be killed by police than a white man. There's a weekly viral video of cops doing saying and or doing unbelievably racist things and the police still aren't doing their job and "cleaning house" as it were.

They're either incompetent(I believe this to be the case) or complicit by their inaction.

So you're ok with hating & stereotyping an entire group of people, but are against anyone else doing that to you? Just making sure I am understanding you correctly since you are dancing around the issue.

People don't choose to be any particular race. But dirt bags often choose to become police. The FBI put out a report in 2006 telling about how white supremacists were joining the military and law enforcement to benefit from the combat/weapons training. (And I assume to get a chance to kill a black or brown person without consequence)
